There are two answers. One answer is for those who wish to lose weight and one answer is for those who do not wish to lose weight. Here are both answers:
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT
If you are trying to lose body fat, 20-70 grams are recommended, depending on your level of activity. For the list of ‘fat burning’ foods that are low carbohydrate foods, and the list of foods that speed up metabolism, which are also low carbohydrate foods, see the page links, further down this page, listed under Sources and Related Links.
FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT
If you are not trying to lose body fat, 180-230 grams are sometimes recommended. Please note, however, that unlike protein or fat there is no minimum daily requirement of carbohydrate for good health or to sustain life.
